Red Letter Day are a british punk rock band formed in Portsmouth in 1984. The band's original lineup was Ade Oakley (vocals, guitar), Ian Campbell (guitar), Pete White (bass guitar) and Brian Lee (drums), although after recording tow demos, this line up ended and Oakley recruited Davie Egan (guitar), Keith Metcalfe (bass), and Daryn Price (drums). The band's first release was the "Wherever You May Run" single in March 1986, which found favour with disc jockey John Peel, who invited them to record a session for his BBC Radio 1 show. The band moved on to Quiet Records for their next two releases before signing for Released Emotions. With former Original Mirrors bassist Steve replacing Metcalfe, the band recorded a split album with The Sect, Soft Lights and Loud Guitars, released in July 1988. After a single in November 1989, Egan left, with Ray "Razor" replacing him. The band's first album proper, More Songs About Love and War, was released in 1991. Two further albums followed in the 90's, 'Nothing At This Moment In Time' in 1994 and 'Lethal' in 1998. In 2001, long standing guitarist and bassist "Razor" and "Wolfie", to be replaced by Chris Perrin and Steve Marsh respectively. This line up recorded and released the album 'Everything Matters', but not long after this release, Steve and later Chris left to be replaced by Lisa and Pablo. Further brief line up changes were to follow but ultimately the band was to go into hibernation in 2009 and come back to activity in 2017 with some live performances.Discogs , Lastfm , Download , Wikipedia , Facebook , Myspace
